Indeed I use an older version, ver 0.4.9. Thanks for the update.

    We have been getting some segmentation faults on the hostapds that we are
    using with madwifi driver. I have found that this is because of the fact
    that session timeouts are not being cancelled although the stations are 
    freed. I added

    eloop_cancel_timeout(ap_handle_session_timer, hapd, sta);

    to the ap_free_sta function in sta_info.c and that fixed the issue. I am no
    longer getting seg. faults. (Also you will need to declare 
    eloop_cancel_timeout somewhere before ap_free_sta)


  I am using hostapd_0.5.7 and I see that there is another call to eloop_cancel_timeout in ap_free_sta (line 157), with the same parameters. Are you using an older version of hostapd?
